Timeless

I just saw the Benedict Arnold episode, and OMG you guys, this show. This show. They keep upping the ante, and making it so good!



Anyone else worry that by killing David Rittenhouse, Lucy would cease to exist? Does her father just work for Rittenhouse, or is he -- and therefore she -- a descendant? Of course, since the son escaped, maybe it doesn't matter.

That bit where Agent Christopher wanted Lucy to meet her family so if they cease to exist, someone will remember them . . . wow. This show just keeps coming up with emotional consequences to time travel. Also, the ongoing debate about preserving history vs. making moral choices is very interesting.

It's a little worrying, but I am starting to really like Flynn. He's ruthless, but he's also motivated by a very understandable goal.

Now the big question is, has Rittenhouse been changed at all? Of course, it must still be a danger, or there won't be much of a show left. Still, given the malleable nature of time, things could get better and then get worse again.

And hooray, Rufus to the rescue! I also liked the bits with Connor Mason we got. I hope we get to see more of him. I want to know how he got involved with Rittenhouse. In fact, I wouldn't mind a whole episode set in the present, just for a change.

It actually didn't occur to me that Lucy might cease to exist - I was assuming the boy would continue Rittenhouse as revenge.

That whole conversation between him and Lucy, with the "no one's ever asked me that before", made me wonder if she was changing history right there. But then the ending certainly gave him a reason for wanting revenge.

I did worry about Lucy at that moment, but also I wondered if it would affect her -- since people who travel in time have their memories preserved against changes, might she herself survive even if she is a descendant, and Rittenhouse / his son were killed?

Or if not, maybe Wyatt and Rufus go on a mission to get Lucy back? Tons of possibilities with this show.

Yes I wondered that - and then Flynn shot his father, and I was all "Uh-oh!"

I expect Wyatt and Rufus will want to go after her no matter what anyone else tells them.
